An investigation has been launched into what started a fire that killed at least 11 workers at an Istanbul construction site.

The blaze engulfed a giant tent used as sleeping accommodation for the teams of builders working on a supermarket project.

Turkey’s state-run television reported the fire might have been sparked by a short circuit, but with the current cold spell others have suggested an electrical heater might have been the source.
